You need a lavish, self-healing solo trip that shakes you out of the funk you’ve been trapped in, and makes you realize how amazing life is.
Traveling alone means that you can be as social or as antisocial as you want to be. Whatever works best for you. This is your time.
There is that popular cliché of people ‘finding themselves’ when they travel solo out there in the world. Honestly though, I completely disagree. I think when you set out on your own you instead, create yourself. You show yourself who you really are, or who you can be in all the different scenarios you will find yourself in.
Explore. The usual attractions in major cities are great, but it’s when you wander down forgotten paths and alleys that you truly discover a city’s hidden gems.
If I had all the money back I’ve spent on things I didn’t care about, I would definitely be rich enough to travel for a year without working. Easily.
It’s because the idea of traveling is tainted with memories of you. Ever since you left, traveling has become one of the loneliest things I have done.
People who don’t spend time on their own are people who don’t know who they are and what they want.
We sometimes tend to ignore what we are truly feeling to continue on without change even if change is what we truly desire. I learned to stop drowning out what my heart was saying and just started listening.
If there’s nobody around to hold us back, we can say yes to all of the things we really want to do.
You will learn things about yourself you didn’t know. You will be put in situations that let you discover things about yourself you may not have known.
